R.A. Dickey is the NL’s new ERA leader.
Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto, who had been wearing the crown, was hammered for four earned runs on nine hits Sunday afternoon against the Astros before exiting after just four frames. He struck out six and issued only one walk, but the typically light-hitting Houston lineup took advantage of balls left up in the zone and the ‘Stros are now in a position to snag two of three from first-place Cincy.
Cueto’s ERA jumped from 2.58 to 2.71 and his WHIP rose from 1.15 to 1.17. He has a 155/42 K/BB ratio in 192 2/3 total innings.
Dickey’s ERA is 2.64 and his WHIP is 1.03. He has 195 strikeouts and 45 walks in 198 innings.
The National League Cy Young Award might just go to a knuckeballer this season.
